Ingredients

  • 4

    strips of steak or shell steaks (about 8 ounces each)

  • 2

    cup beef broth

  • 4

    green onions

  • ¼

    tsp dried thyme

  • ¼

    tsp dried sage

  • ¼

    tsp dried basil

  • 4

    Tbsp butter

  • ¼

    cup all-purpose flour

  • ½

    tsp salt

  • 1

    Tbsp lemon juice

  • 2

    Tbsp fresh chives

  • 1

    tsp dried tarragon

Directions

Preheat grill or broiler. Cook steaks, turning once, for 20 minutes for medium-rare. Meanwhile, combine broth, green onions, thyme, sage and basil in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer for about 20 minutes. Strain and reserve broth. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add flour. Cook, stirring constantly, until golden, about 2 minutes. Stir in reserved broth. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Add salt, lemon juice, chives and tarragon; mix well. Divide sauce among small bowls; serve alongside steak. This savory steak sauce is excellent on any steak or chop. So select a less expensive cut, such as Porterhouse or T-bone, to save a few dollars. Try the sauce on grilled chicken, too.
